IE8 bug: default accelerator for translations Live Search in arabic-english

Q: IE8 bug: default accelerator for translations Live Search in arabic-english

I've just upgraded from IE7/Vista SP1, x86, ITA to IE8.
Everything works fine except one thing: IE8's Live Search accelerator to tranlsate text is in arabic-english as default instead of the expected english-italian. If I change to english-italian settings won't be saved.

If I use InPrivate browsing or disable Protected mode it's ok instead.

This problems has been already reported by other users some months ago with the betas: Microsoft Translator Official Team Blog : IE8 Beta 2 - Translation Accelerator

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I sometimes wonder about techs using tools such as Seatools, HDD regenerator etc to diagnose/repair hard drives. Do any of these tools beat Chkdsk in any way?
(besides data recovery tools, I guess those have no match in Windows).

Thank you

A:Do you need more than Windows default tools to check/repair a hard drive?

IMO, always use the tool provided by the vender. At the time you need this tool, you don't need a 3rd party screw-up to 'help you' really mess it up.

Have to choose a new work phone but I have a hard time deciding ... Friend's Galaxy S5 and 8200 mah battery seems awesome so Apple and Microsoft are not up to my mind. Since the new phone is supposed to live with me for like 2 years, so..what's the average life span of Samsung phone?
Anyone have opinions? Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or Galaxy S5?

A:Need a phone to live with me for like 2 years

A smartphone can last for numerous years as long as you don't abuse it. It isn't a matter of lifespan since most phone hardware gets dated after 2-4 years and you are going to want an upgrade. It will still work even after the cell service is ended.

I have headphones through onboard audio set as the default playback device.

I have HDMI set to listen stereo mix (onboard) under recording devices so that I can get duplicate audio on my headphones and TV.

Windows 7 likes to set as HMDI audio as the default playback device when I am not looking (assumedly shortly after rebooting, but not quite sure when). And then I get no sound from my headphones because the programs are all playing on HDMI.

Is there way I can fix this?

A:HDMI hijacks default playback device

Hmm; I think HDMI is mutually exclusive to pc { speakers & headphones }. If the HDMI senses a signal to the tv, then the others go off.

right-click on the speaker icon in the tray and view/set the playback devices

I have a 2TB My Book Live that I and my housemates use to store media. Initially I was the primary contributor to the drive, and at that time there were no issues. Eventually, someone else began adding files to the server. Since then, any folder that someone else has added files to cannot be accessed by me unless I am logged in as a guest. If I log in as an administrator the folders show up but are greyed out. This only happened with one user. I am running a Mac, and they were using Windows, but other Windows users have added files without causing this issue. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this, and if anyone knows of a workaround other than always logging out as administrator when I want to access those folders.

Thanks for any help

Some shares on my 3+3 my book live duo RAID1 are no more accessible, they are shown as 0 bytes. It seems that the share table was corrupted, nevertheless the data are there (ther is still the right used space on the disk)
I spent two months exchanging mails with the WD support and the only suggestion I received was to reset the system and loose the data.
otherwise I could access one of the disks directly but neither windows neiter linux can read the disk (they cannot even mount it).
first a complain: why I should spend a lot of money to have reliable disks in raid1 configuration if a bug in a proprietary software can fool my efforts.
second a requst for help: does anyone knows how to read the damned disk?
thank you for any suggestion.

Note the solution presented in the previous thread is for a different make of laptop.

Problem: Wirless disabled by default on start up and resume.

I am having the same problem with my windows 7 reinstall of my SYX160001. Have tried similar remidies... ie power management, driver updates, enabling netowrk discovery, etc.

Any idea on how to overcome this nusiance of needing to turn on the wireless

A:Atheros AR9285 wireless disabled by default at startup

SOLUTION! (at least for me on my laptop)

I just had this problem when I reinstalled the OS from the OEM disc (not the factory install disc) I figured the OEM disc had a driver conflict. But I incorrectly pointed the finger at the wirless lan driver.

The HOT KEY strip (the one with the buttons that turn white when you touch them just above the keyboard) on my laptop also controls the Wi-Fi Radio on/off button. This was the problem. You need the origional driver for that strip, even if your volume on the strip is working.

Background. Think of your wireless lan as two seperate devices... the radio is compared to the cord of an ethernet connection. The wireless lan card is the ethernet card. When you think about it as one device it is easy to see why so many people assume the problem is with the wireless lan card. But the important part is that a laptop usually devides the two up to save power. Controlling the radio from a button on the keyboard (or a function key) (mine is FN +F2) is another reason to think of the two as seperate items.

Before reaching this conclusion I tried using "allow the computer to turn this device off to save power" I also had tried Hi performance modes and other wireless radio from the control pannel in both plug-in and battery modes. I tried the turn wireless netork on and off as well. There were plenty of reasons to think this was going to fix the problem.

So update your HOTkey strip driver... see if that doesnt fix your problem.

A:Default monitor has been turned off in control panel on laptop

A little confusion on my part here! Are you talking about (two) external monitors being hooked up to one lap top computer? Or are you referring to the (default) monitor, being it's own built in screen being the (default) which wont work? And if the built in LCD screen won't work, are we talking about you hooking up an external monitor, which will not work as well? And something about you shutting down your computer ability to show itself on a monitor that may have some how been turned off, probably through your XP's (control panel) under (display)!

This was just me thinking of these question "out loud", maybe if we could have a little bit more insight to your problem, we could advise on how to fix it!

A:Resetting default audio settings?

You have probably made your headphones default, and turned off the speakers.
In the taskbar, near the clock, right-click on the speaker icon. Choose 'Playback devices'. In the new window, do you see 1 or 2 items? Speakers and below that Speaker/headphones. Right-click on what is showing, and in the list tick the options, 'Show disabled devices' and 'Show disconnected devices'.
Now you should have 'Speakers' line showing, so right-click on it, and choose 'properties'. At the bottom of the box, you see a drop-box that gives 2 options. Make it to be 'Use this device-enable'. Click OK. That should work.

Recently, I've had problems with some games crashing. I searched for a solution on the web and one recommendation was to uninstall the graphics accelerator which I did. Now those same games are playing fine without crashing. I had previously uninstalled the graphics drivers and reinstalled them. That didn't help.

Why would some games play fine without the accelerator? What do I sacrifice by not having the accelerator?

Specs: Win xp, Mobile Intel 915GM/GMS, 910 GML Express, graphics accelerator 900.

Thanks in advance for any responses!

A:Uninstalled graphics accelerator

If I understood you correctly, when you restart the computer Windows automatically reinstalls the graphics accelerator and the graphics driver which must have cleared up your problem. The graphics accelerator is another name for graphics card or in your case onboard graphics. The graphics accelerator is hardware so cannot be removed physically by software uninstalling. If your graphics "card" was truly gone, you would have no video output at all.

Reason why is because I go to Univision (spanish tv network) to watch the World Cup games live in HD but they're flash player is small and doesn't let me go full screen. Any info would be great, thanks.

Hi all

I have a default gateway and IP address issue that I have tried to solve but can't.

Isp is plusnet, running windows xp sp 2, using a wireless connection on a compaq laptop thats less than a year old.

All of a sudden my connection went, when i tried to get on again it wouldnt let me and said that there was no connection, went into my daughters room and hers is fine. I had a look at the connections and it wasn't having a bar of it so I tried an ethernet connection...nothing. I had a bit of a play with things putting in ip address, ping back etc ... nothing is working. Had enough now and ready to chuck it out the window.

Correct me if I'm wrong

(Working with old computer, getting it to work)
I was having problems with re-installing Windows XP and SP1-3 updates, and connecting to internet.and getting DNS errs.
Went into ipconfig, and had no default gateway

So, I eventually found my way to windows error reports,doing a search:
for "setuperr"

Turns out the "computer name" had errors in it with non-allowed characters.
Went into Control Panel, clicked on System, did the fix.
No underlines, etc. allowed

Looking into setuperr logs is really helpful, dont ya think?

We have not found the ASRock motherboard to be very reliable, nor have very good performance... spend $25 to $40 more, and get a Gigabyte, Intel, Asus, Biostar, EVGA, Elitegroup, MSI or other board known for reliability, and you might be happy a lot longer.
Some of the Gigabyte boards that are six months on the shelf at Directron, ZipZoomFly, Frys, PCMall, or New Egg are great boards that have had significant price reductions to clear storage space for the hot new models.

I've been having a problem with the display over remote connection.
In the configuraiton I'm using, I have 2 PC's connected by LAN, but only 1 screen, and in order to see the video output of the 2nd PC, I just use remote desktop connection from the 1st PC.

I've realized that when starting up the RDP, I get an error "The video card is not updated", although this error does not appear when connecting a monitor directly to that PC.
In addition, there's decreased performance of the video output through the RDP, and graphics seems to be with a slower refresh rate. I didn't have that kind of a problem with my previous graphics card, which was older.

I'm thinking that it has to do with the default boot of the card. If no screen is connected, it thinks that it's starting up with VGA configuration perhaps?

Any ideas?

A:GeForce 8500GT default boot

There's probably a simpler way to connect both computers to one monitor, provided that the monitor is an LCD. Many LCD screens have both a DVI and a VGA input. You can connect one computer to the DVI and the other to the VGA. If a monitor has both there will be a button to switch the input, so you can just press a button to switch which screen is displayed.

Also, have you updated your graphics drivers?

Does anybody know how to change the language of a scanner. We had to uninstall everything last year when our computer got a virus and the technician cleaned our hard drive. I reinstalled the software for the scanner and definitely selected English as the language we wanted but both times I tried it it came out in French.

We have worked out what words mean clear, preview and scan in French but cannot use any of the fine tuning buttons as we don't know what they say.

The Scanner is a Canoscan N656U and the programme is Canoscan Version 1.02

Use adda and remove to uninstall the scanner, then reinstall. That problem is not uncommon, but usually goes away. Use RegCleaner from to remove any remaining parts of the Scanner software, then reboot, then reinstall.

Here is what I know:
I know that you can connect to xboxlive by plugging the xbox into the pc via ethernet and bridging the connection with your wireless internet connection on your pc. (Wireless because pcs generally only have one ethernet port).

My problem:
My university does not allow consols to connect to the wired internet (there is no wireless). My computer is connected to the internet via ethernet.

My question:
If I buy a USB to Etethernt converter for my pc and plug the xbox in there will I be able to have 2 connections running, 1. pc -> internet, 2. pc -> xbox. And if I were to bridge those connections would my xbox be able to go online?

Thanks to anyone who knows or helps.

A:Connecting to Xbox Live through Computer

I'm not sure what kind of restrictions your university has put forth to disallow consoles from getting online but two ideas to share the net connection would be: 1) a router, or 2) get a second Ethernet card for your PC so you can have the Xbox connecting strictly through your PC.

Once again, that might not be enough if the system admins are blocking specific ports or domains but you can always try.

Hi all!

I have PC on Asus P5B-V motherboard with integrated video card (Intel G965 based). It looks like the integrated video came to it end after a voltage jump. I tried to reanimate the PC by using PCI or PCI-e card, but I didn't found any jumpers on the MB except one resetting bios. Switching between graphics cards are possible from BIOS which I cannot see, and it looks that the default option is IGD.
May anybody suggest something or it will be better to throw this MB to waste bin?
Thanks in advance!

PS. I?m first time here ? sorry if I used incorrect sub-forum (and eternal sorry for my non-native English)

A:Integrated graphics card dead, it was primary by default

Well, here's what I would try. If you have the manual that came with the motherboard you can have a look and see what the BIOS layout looks like. After you've studied that a bit, try turning the computer on and navigating through the BIOS (without actually seeing it) by memory. You may be able to switch from onboard to a dedicated device that way. I know that sounds a little dull but it's gonna be tricky without having anything to look at.

My router is a bit simple, not the latest around, but my NAT on xbox 360 has been STRICT for a while now and I dont know how to set it back!. I try enabling Upnp, opening ports and also DMZ but I have to assign it to a certain IP Address guessing the 360's connecting IP address. But i am not fully sure of how to get it to OPEN NAT.

Please Help,

A:NAT Xbox Live 'Strict'

general options for getting your NAT Status to Open

There are four ways to overcome a Strict/Moderate NAT setting when using a router. I have listed them in the order of preference:-

1. If you have an Xbox Live Certified router, use the certified firmware for your router
2. Use UPnP. If your router supports this. Turn it on. The router will work out the ports it needs to open for Xbox live. If your router does not have this feature, check the manufacturers website for the latest firmware. (also make sure portforwarding and/or DMZ is turned off as they interfere with UPnP)
3. Port forwarding (look up your router here then follow the instructions for Xbox Live 360)
4. Use a DMZ (De-militarized Zone)
The DMZ (De-militarized Zone) is area that sits outside of your routers firewall. Don't worry though your not at risk with your Xbox


Do not mix and match portfowarding with UPnP and/or DMZ. Each of the methods should be used on their own. Do not turn on UPnP and expect to be able to setup a DMZ or Portforward.


If UPnP is not an option for you, or you have tried it and it does not work. Look up your router here then follow the instructions for Xbox Live 360. When you port forward the ip address that you need to forward to is the ip address of the Xbox. It is always best to use a static ip address when portforwarding, see this section for more details.


Consult your router documentation to find out how to put your Xbox IP Address in the DMZ of your router. It is always best to use a static ip address when using a DMZ,

Also what router have you got??? is it a belkin?

Hello! My computer has no sound... I checked the Device Manager and under Sound, Video and Game Controllers it show the SB Live! 24-bit with a yellow exclamation mark. Can anyone tell me what should I do with it?

A:Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit

A yellow Triangle with a exclamation point? Then that should mean that it has no drivers installed. Go to, and under support click downloads, and then you should be able to enter your devices name and get drivers for it.

Yeah, you may think this seems like just a normal message from oc'ing too much, but a problem-I haven't overclocked anything! It booted to that point, then my hard drive went mad clicking and crashed. This was after it being turned on and off to see if my graphics card was booting because I had no video, but it turned out I had just been downright stupid and plugged it into the onboard graphics. Anyone know what could have happened? Thanks

P.S. would the power drawing thing (molex on my case fan) need to have a seperate connector or just draw power from another device? Thanks.

A:'Previous overclock settings failed, default settings enabled'

If this happens just once then I wouldn't worry about it too much but the PSU or HDD could have something to do with it.

You can connect a molex connector fan to its own power connector or you can put it on an optical drive's connector for example, but it's ok to do either as they don't use much power.

This is not the first problem Ive had with my vx but it s far more perplexing than my first which I corrected with a new video card ATI x That card took a crap and now I have an ATI x Put simply my monitor keeps switching to the Default Monitor in my Device Manager but only when the monitor has been off for a while minutes or more It s difficult to say switching Monitor Default to Monitor when this started since I was on deployment when my wife told me about it Pretty much the scenario is that I switch off or Restart no problem But If I leave the computer off for more than minutes then turn it back on I have Monitor switching to Default Monitor to switch to the DVI cable wait a second then switch back to the VGA cable before my screen becomes visible After doing this if I go to the Device Manager the Monitor will be Default Monitor If I quot scan for hardware changes quot my vx shows up I have the latest drivers for everything from mobo to monitor nbsp

A:Problem connecting laptop wirelessly to orange live box

The orange livebox has to be set for broadcasting, and because you can see it in the Acers network list, all is well except either the WEP key is wrong or you have not set the livebox to discover or assign IP adresses automatically... You may have to type in an IP address manually

Sorry for your stroke, but you might need a little more personal help with this task. Is there someone, a friend or associate that might be available to help you?

A:Xbox 360 Live Networking Issue

XBox Live requires 3 ports for full open access. UDP/88 UDP/3074 and TCP/3074. The F5D8230-4 comes hardcoded with some sort of web based management stuck on port 88. As I understand it the DMZ sends all unforwarded ports to the DMZ. Since 88 is being forwarded, by default hardcoding, to the web service then it will continually cause glitches with XBox Live. I just started trying to configure this router for a friend and I can't get Belkin tech support to respond yet. I can't imagine why they would hard code a web management port, but they better fix it with a firmware patch or they're going to lose a lot of business from XBox live gamers.
If I manage to track down a solution to the port 88 blocking, I'll post it here. BTW if you want to check if your router has the same port 88 issue, go to the virtual server tab and place an entry for Xbox, 88,88, (your xbox360 ip),88,88 and enable it. Every time I've tried I get a pop-up complaining that it will cause a collision with the wireless web management.
Good luck.

Okay this question is a bit of two things - to explain the problem i need to explain this first....

Im a music tech student & i've set up my own MIDI keyboard at home with Micrologic software - problem number 1 is that there is really bad latency going on so....

I was recommended a 'sound blaster live' soundcard to sort it out - i've installed it sucessfully etc - but it has'nt helped at all & my micrologic software doesnt have it listed in its 'drivers' section where you choose what to play the sound through.

So now im super confused with a load of new equipment that does nothing =|

anyone know where im going wrong?

A:Problem with Creative soundblaster live & micrologic

A Midi keyboard is not normally affectd by CAS latency, unless the memory modules are quite different from each other in density, quality, or timings.
The sound blaster live drivers are widely available free by download. How do you load software into this keyboard?

A:Sound Blaster Live! Problem.. Says I have 'No Audio Playback Devices'

It is possible the drivers are corrupt, or damaged in some way.
Does audio show up in the BIOS when you first boot up?
What do you see for audio when you go to Control Panel ->System->Hardware->Device Manager?
Does the section for audio drivers show a red or yellow flag?
Regardless, I would remove or disable the audio drivers, then download and install a new driver set.
Then check those obvious things that are such embarrassments... is the speaker device plugged into the correct socket? Are the speakers turned on. Do they work in another computer?

Hi folks,

I've got a 120 GB HDD chopped up into one 42GB primary partition for Windows XP and one extended partition with a 56.9 GB logical disk for My Documents. (Never mind the sizes, they just came out that way). Anyway, this leaves me with 11.36 GB unallocated. I want to add 2 GB to each of my existing partitions and use the remaining space for a Debian Linux install.


1. How can I add more space to the existing NTFS partitions using gParted?
2. What filesystem, if any, do I need to format the remaining unallocated space to so I can install Debian?
3. (Off topic): Is Debian even a good Linux distribution for me to start using, as I'm a complete newbie to Linux? (I've got the minimal netinstaller ISO burned to a CD)



A:Assigning unallocated space to existing NTFS partitions (with gParted Live)?

i do not know anything about Linux so I will not offer an answer to that. but u can use Partition Magic 8.0 as it will do about anything to any partition as far as formatting, distrubutting space or anything like that and can change what it is formatted as ( NFTS, FAT, FAT32)

This is an advanced question. I'm just seeing what anybody might have to chip in. So I'm working with a SBS 2003 R2. We have the local intranet (companyweb) that uses SharePoint for the document sharing and what not. SharePoint has a feature that enables users to search on the companyweb page. However, this feature does not come standard. It has to be implemented. I've been finding a couple of different options available. The strongest one seems to be just installing SQL Server 2000 or higher to supplement the back end database for the SharePoint Search. Has anyone had to work with this before and have any suggestions?

P.S.- SBS does install SQL desktop engine "stock" onto the server. But it doesn't have anything actually running in the background. Thanks!

Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Display ->Settings. You can change it there... Default depends on your monitor and graphics card... usually it is 1024 X 768... You may also see in settings a choice for 16 bit, which is often Default, and called Medium. Or 32 bit with is "Highest"

On a pc where xp-sp2 was reinstalled from scratch, Live Messenger works properly except for sound. The person we call can hear us fine but his voice is garbled. When we play a DVD movie on the pc, sound is also garbled.

On the other hand, a music cd plays fine (over same player). And when there is sound on PowerPoint (PPS) documents, sound is also okay.

The sound device is a built-in Creative SB PCI 128 (Ensoniq ES 5880). We updated the firmware with an upgrade from the SB site: SBPCI128Setupus_w2k. No change. We then tried to install the most recent firmware version WebDrvsV5_12_01. We got an error message telling us we had no Sound Blaster device (!!!) although it's a Creative SB PCI 128 (Ensoniq ES 5880).

A:Sound problem with Live Messenger

Go to Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager, then remove or disable the existing driver. Then go to the sound manufacturer's web site to download the driver one more time.
